I didn't know you'd pulled the Nazi card and gotten banned too Tripper.
That's kinda funny... There is over-sensitivity there on many issues, by a vast majority of people. Tack onto that all the liars, all the completely arrogant people, all the "kids" (not all kids are bad, but the "kids" are guys like Gen Windu, yodaboi, etc. who are considered above and beyond annoying), and all the condescending attitudes.
There's a lotta Comic-Book-Guy syndromes over there... Especially towards new people (old or young) and it transcends sections of that site. Vintage has them, Modern areas have them, the film sections have them, and Wuhers has them by the truckload.
Also, there's guys there that simply aren't respectable... The kind that fight just to fight, argue a point when they're wrong (Some even being proven they were arguing the opposite way in other threads), and won't back down at all... These are people that simply like hearing themselves talk, and making sure everyone else has eyes on them. Little attention from their parents, so they crave it on internet forums.
Then there's the political BS... There's still guys there that think making a point politically is what every post should be about, even when against the rules of the site... It's one of the few rules Scum tries hard to enforce.
I mean, there's names there that really should've been banned LONG ago, even when it was a half-decent forum, but they still are trolling around... Some of them are people let back in that were rightfully kicked out in the first place even.
Yet someone makes a Nazi "joke" because of the over-policing on some issues, and that whole site is up in arms on it. I'll never get that way of running things. That's what doesn't make sense, and I think it's the reason for the downhill days.
